The authentic character of the Bonneville T120 comes to life through the 1200cc ‘high torque’ 8-valve parallel twin engine.
Built specially for the modern classic motorcycle riding style, with immediate and exciting power delivery, it produces a massive peak torque figure of 77 FT-lbs at a low 3,100rpm – an amazing 54% more than the previous generation Bonneville. With a power output of 80HP at 6,550rpm, 18% up on the previous engine, the 1200cc delivers much more power lower down and across the whole rev range, with 50% more power at 4,500rpm. With the pinpoint accuracy and instant throttle response of Triumph’s latest generation ride-by-wire fuel-injection and engine management system, the six-speed Bonneville T120 is engineered with a charismatic tone and 270° firing interval for a smooth linear power delivery.
The Bonneville 1200cc engine profile has been beautifully styled with a high level of detailing and finish, like the machined engine fins, incorporating key heritage styling cues from the legendary 60s Bonneville motorbike engine silhouette whilst incorporating contemporary components sensitively to maintain that iconic and authentic look.
With elegant twin peashooter style exhausts following a clean straight line header pipe run, the Bonneville T120 delivers the true sound of a British Twin, a deep and rich note that truly matches its character, tuned to a level you would want and expect.
